Dalkey Archive Press is offering a Fellowship that will combine intensive study and experience in publishing and literary translation. The Fellow will gain experience in several areas of publishing while also learning how to edit translations, provide sample translations, work with authors and agents, and scout for works to be considered for publication. Applications are invited from all languages, but preference will be given to those candidates with high proficiency in one or more of the Slavic languages and extensive familiarity with contemporary writers from the Slavic countries. Previous experience in editing is a plus but is not a requirement. A background in the books published by Dalkey Archive Press is expected. The Fellowship may lead to assignment in Dalkey Archive's/University of Houston-Victoria's Applied Literary Translation Program.
Stipend for a full year is $18,000. Deadlines for applications: June 15, 2016. To apply, please send a complete CV and cover letter that responds to the requirements and preferences stated above to Jake Snyder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
